Why not try...Lemony lamb chops
Grill lamb chops for 5-6 mins each side until pink. Meanwhile, mix together the finely grated zest 1 lemon with finely chopped parsley and 1 finely chopped garlic clove. Sprinkle over the lamb to serve.


  1. Tip the flour, paprika, salt and pepper into a food bag and toss in the pork until coated. Heat the oil in a flameproof casserole and fry the pork until brown on all sides. Add them rosemary, garlic and bay, then fry for 1 min more. Pour in the wine and bring to the boil, scraping the bottom of the casserole. Lower to a simmer and throw in the lemon zest.

  2. Cover the casserole, place on the lowest heat and simmer for 1 hr until the pork is tender. Add a splash of water if the sauce becomes too thick. Just before serving, stir in the lemon juice and check the seasoning.
